About BLOOM!

    Yoga isn’t just a physical exercise program.  It is also a system designed to generate greater clarity and harmony in your life. When you practice yoga, you will find that
    you are more patient, mentally sharper, and better able to handle stressful situations.Many health/fitness programs are difficult to maintain because they are rooted in
    an overall negative attitude that you are inadequate and need to ‘fix’ yourself.  No wonder we want to quit!  Negativity is a poor motivator. Yoga, on the other hand,
    meets you exactly where you are and does not judge.  By practicing yoga you have the opportunity to gain greater health, flexibility and strength through powerful,
    positive means.  Allow yourself to be healthy by honoring yourself, not forcing yourself.   ~Yoga Health Foundation
